I'm a programmer, that's pretty much all I've ever done.

I live in America, a country with great national parks, wonderful bookstores and libraries, well organized sports teams, and hey!, this is where the internet was invented (even if it wasn't invented by a foolish man from Tennessee.)

But ah, how does one sell software these days? Years ago, ah, early '90s I think, I tried to do business with MS, they made the right noises for a while but, no, turns out they were just kicking the tires. And really, I'm just not a Microsoft kind of guy.

(My tastes are much closer to UNIX and Linux.)

So my question, how does one sell software these days? I've been doing research for a lab for the past 15-20 years or so, and the group is getting back into financial apps and I just don't want to do that anymore. I have some programs that do some pretty unusual things.

But I have no idea how to sell my goods.
